White, who won the Tony Award June 1 as Best Featured Actress in a Musical in the show, is featured on two major CD releases, the original cast album of The Life, which is scheduled to be will be released on Sony classical June 3, and on the soundrack (released last week) of the forthcoming Disney cartoon Hercules.
Her big song on The Life is "(I'm Getting Too Old for) The Oldest Profession." Featured with her on the album is Chuck Cooper, winner of the Tony as Best Featured Actor in a Musical.
